  • From the album best of donovan ii

    Oh, I dwelt in the north in the green country,
    Far-a-mere, far from here;
    And dream of the girl with the sunshine eyes
    Sundaily, Sundaily;
    And I take to my rest at the end of day,
    Whilst o'erhead the pretty stars do play.

    And I dream along,
    And I make a song
    About everything that I've known and felt;
    And it makes the sadness melt.
    Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day,
    The rain has gone away,
    Watching the children sing and play
    In the garden and the roadway.
    Up comes a little one singin' a song
    About a friend she knows called Rosie.
    Off to the green wood you must go,
    To bring (h)er a one fine posie.
    All of a sudden the night is empty,
    You're sad as a butterfly.

    Oh I dwelt in the north in the green country,
    Far-a-mere, far-a-mere;
    And I dwelt with my pride and my songs and things
    Wearily, wearily;
    And I dream of the girl with the sunshine eyes
    Sundaily, wherever she may be.

    And I dream along,
    And I make a song
    About everything that I've known and felt;
    And it makes the sadness melt.
    Then I wake up in the funny old kind of day,
    The rain has gone away
    Watching the little ones sing and play
    In the garden and the roadway.
    Up comes a little one singin' a song
    About a friend she knows called Rosie.
    Off to the green wood you must go, to bring (h)er a one fine posie.
    All of a sudden the night is empty, you're sad as a butterfly.

    Oh, I dwelt in the north in the green country,
    Far-a-mere, wearily;
    And I dream of the girl with the sunshine eyes
    Sundaily, wherever she may be.

    And I dream along,
    And I make a song
    About everything that I've known and felt,
    And it makes the sadness melt.
